Increasing human physical strength is a long researched area. Mainly military applications have been developed in order to increase the load-bearing capacity of the soldiers. However, in addition to military developments, healthcare and industrial applications are also gaining prominence. In this paper, the development directions of industrial exoskeletons with an emphasis on pneumatically operated devices are reviewed. An essential part of this paper is the analysis of the human-machine interaction. With our research results, we want to contribute to disseminating exoskeletons and facilitating adaptation to related areas.

In this paper, we study electro-pneumatic systems with magnetic proximity switches. Besides, magnetic proximity switches are sensors compatible with T-Slot. These sensors with LED Indicator have the following characteristics: supply voltage 24 V dc, minimum operating is -400C and maximum operating temperature is +850C. The study of pneumatic and electro-pneumatic circuits is performed in the software FluidSim from Festo. In the first part, we make simple pneumatic circuits with one cylinder or two pneumatic cylinders. We continue with simple and complex electro-pneumatic schemes that have magnetic proximity switches.
